    The little key that the slot in the guide bushing slides over or the key that the slot in the main collet sleeve slides over? Hmmm, yeah I wonder if the spindle and GB arenít in alignment.

    I feeeeeally like replaceable-tip Iscar SumoCham drills. They pretty much require CTS but theyíre so easy to replace the tips in and even though theyíre carbide they seem very shatter-resistant.
